You're taking a walk around your neighborhood alone at night. While you're walking, you see a black guy in a hoodie walking the opposite direction as you, you carefully watch him out of suspicion. Is this racist or the sad truth?
I live in the south side of Chicago so I'm vigilant towards everyone around me when I'm alone. Race doesn't make any difference because it's a predominately ethnic area- to be afraid of a black man would be fear something like 75% of the population.
When I'm walking at night I watch anyone who walks past me, regardless of race, age, sex, etc.
I don't think they are going to do anything, but that's just a habit.
How about if it was a white dude in the hoodie? Would you feel safer? Or what if the hoodie was pulled down, you couldn't tell the race. First, if you don't feel safe to walk at night, either use treadmill at home, or get a gun with a conceal license
